Visit the New Student Information website for registration dates, procedures and policies.
This information will help you register for the upcoming semester. If you still have questions about registration policies and procedures, contact an advisor in your program.
If you need to update your address and/or telephone information and/or submit a student health insurance waiver, do so at my.newschool.edu before you try to register.
Log in to MyNewSchool With Your NetID User Name. A typical student user name is in the following format The first 4 letters of last name + first initial + three numbers; not case sensitive. Your Net ID username is the beginning of your New School email address.
For example, if a student is named John Smith, this would be his email and username:
When you first log in to MyNewSchool, your default password is your 6-digit date of birth (mm/dd/yy). You will be prompted to change this to a more secure password. You will need your username and password for all future MyNewSchool log-ins, including for Web registration.
Go to my.newschool.edu and make sure there are no holds that prevent you from registering. For example, any outstanding financial obligations must be cleared with Student Financial Services or a hold will be placed on your account blocking registration and release of transcripts.
Before you can register, you must resolve any registration hold with the office that initiated the hold.
In preparation for meeting with your advisor, search the
University Course Catalog
to find courses that interest you. You can search by Course Topic, Keyword, Department, and a number of other criteria, and then view course descriptions and registration availability for upcoming semesters.
DegreeWorks is an online tool that shows you which degree requirements you have completed and which remain to be done. Access to DegreeWorks is through the Student tab in
. If you haven't used it before, read the
Find advising information by division at the bottom of this page. It is your responsibility to know and understand your program's advising and registration deadlines and other policies. Do not hesitate to contact your department or program if you are unsure about your responsibilities with respect to course advising, registration, and other academic policies and procedures.
To take a course Pass/Fail, you must submit the Petition for Graduate Pass/Fail Grade. This form is available from your advising office. The petition must be signed by the course instructor and then submitted to the Registrar's Office by the Add deadline to finalize the registration. Pass/Fail petitions will not be accepted after the university's Add deadline has passed.
Some divisions require continuous residency of degree students. Students not registering to take courses for credit nor on approved leave of absence must register to maintain status. Typically, graduate students working on a thesis or dissertation must register for Maintenance of Status. Students must have permission to maintain status; their registration forms must be signed by the departmental advisor. There is a tuition charge for Maintenance of Status and the student must pay the University Services and any divisional fees as well. The Student Health Insurance premium and health services fee are automatically charged unless waived by the deadline (see Health Fee Policy section).
Most students registering to Maintain Status also register for Equivalency credits.
To audit a course, you must obtain the
appropriate advisor signatures on the course Add/Drop form and must
register for the course in-person at the Registrar's Office. You cannot
register as an auditor via MyNewSchool. Audit fees are listed in the
Tuition and Fee Schedule. You may not attend any course without being
properly registered in that course. Note Auditing a course is NOT the
same as maintaining status; if you are not taking any courses toward your degree in the coming semester, you must register for Maintain Status even if you are auditing a course.
Equivalency credit is granted for approved activities other than courses that are part of a student's progress toward a degree, for example, researching or writing a thesis, conducting fieldwork, undertaking foreign language study, or taking part in an exchange program. The purpose of Equivalency credits is to establish appropriate enrollment status in order to defer student loans, to qualify for TAP or other financial aid, or to comply with visa requirements. For example, a student working full-time on a doctoral dissertation and applying for TAP awards must register for 12 equivalency credits per semester.
For graduate students, full-time status is defined as enrollment for nine degree credits per semester and half-time status is defined as enrollment for six degree credits per semester. Any graduate student actively working on non-course degree requirements who is not taking a full-time course load should register for equivalency credits.
A student registering for Equivalency credit must also register either for additional courses for credit or to Maintain Status. Note Equivalency credit is not granted for completing outstanding coursework, making up grades of Incomplete, or retaking courses.
Registration for Equivalency credit takes place during the normal registration period. Equivalency courses carry no fees.
Students are responsible for knowing university policies regarding
adding or dropping courses and refund of tuition and fees. Refunds are
granted only after the official withdrawal procedure has been completed.
View the Academic Calendar for details about registration dates and deadlines (add, drop, and withdrawal), semester beginning and ending dates, and university holidays. Consult with your advising office for registration dates for late-starting courses.
All university offices are closed on Fridays during the summer from mid-June through mid-August and on university holidays.
The Registrar's Office maintains registration and academic record information and establishes policies and procedures regarding these matters. As a student, it is your responsibility to know and understand this information. If you have questions, call the office at 212.229.5620 or go in person to 72 Fifth Avenue, 2nd floor.
There is a financial penalty for dropping courses after the Drop deadline after an academic term has begun unless you add equivalent credits on the same day, in which case the penalty is waived. Review the University Refund Schedule using the link above.

Information About Registration, Courses, Policies and Procedures, and Academic Resources
Prior to registration, BAFA students must meet first with the advisor for the college at which they plan to take the majority of credits in the coming semester, and afterward meet with the advisor from the other college. For example, if a BAFA student plans to register for more studio courses in the coming term (this is usually the case with students earlier in the BAFA program), he/she should first contact the studio program advisor. (At Parsons, appointments with major advisors are scheduled through the Student Success Network. Jazz students contact Kyle Wilson.) If a BAFA student plans to register for more liberal arts courses in the coming term (normal for students in more advanced stages of the BAFA program), she/he should first contact the assigned Eugene Lang College faculty advisor or department/major advisor.
All BAFA students should review degree requirements in the BAFA Student Handbook on the BAFA website before meeting with their advisors.
